Dr Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin is Associate Professor in the UCD School of Mathematics & Statistics and Chair of Ireland's Citizens' Assembly on Biodiversity Loss, whose report and recommendations were published in March 2023. In April 2023 she was invited to present on the work of the Assembly at the UN General Assembly in New York, in celebration of Mother Earth Day. A renowned science communicator, Aoibhinn has brought scientific research findings to life through her work on TV, radio and in print. A former teacher who taught in a socioeconomically disadvantaged area of Dublin, she is committed to making the subjects of mathematics and science more accessible to those who have historically been left out, whether because they are from an economically underprivileged community or because they are female. Her educational initiatives include the 'Maths Sparks' workshops and 'Role Models in pSTEM' video resources. She is programme director of the undergraduate initial teacher education programme in mathematics and science in the UCD College of Science. She is also a member of the UCD Earth Institute interdisciplinary research group, who work to improve fundamental understandings of our rapidly changing environment and find solutions for a sustainable future.
